Thomas Jefferson Dillon

Well Thomas has kept me quite busy. He had many trips to the County Court house in Warsaw. Many of the cases were simple land and property disputes, however a series of entries implicate him and another woman in a lewd and lascivious charge. Thomas and the woman were eventually found not guilty, but it sure did make for some interesting reading. One of the most valuable pieces of information I found while reading the court cases was the divorce record for Thomas and his second wife Adelaide Portia Dorsey. It had been assumed she had died prior to the 1850 census. She divorced Thomas while the whole lewd and lascivious trial was going on. I have transcribed the court cases involving Thomas and placed them in chronological order, they are located in the forum part of this website. Thomas Dillon Court Cases
